Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Stormy Weather

Posted on: June 25, 2004

We just don’t have thunderstorms like this in California. It was grey and muggy here all day and then at about 6pm — right when we were supposed to go to the Rotary clam bake on the beach — the skies opened and it is absolutely pouring rain like there’s no tomorrow. I’m sitting at my Mom’s desk and her office ceiling is all skylights and the noise from the rain is deafening!

The rain got me and Grandpa out of having going to the clam bake, but poor Mom and Bill are there now. Then we’re off to a fundraiser for Diane Farrell in Darien and then I’ll be heading to Katy’s night-before-the-wedding get-together at the pool hall in Fairfield we used to go to on occasion…

I’ll have photos to post later — after a morning visit to Dr. Bruce, Mom and I stopped by the exhibit at the Arts Center that Aunt Susan’s pieces are in, we visited Farrell campaign headquarters, we stopped by Aunt Susan’s to help with her computer, stopped by to see the new constuction on the playhouse and chatted with Joanne and Annie, did a bit of shopping, and went downtown and ran into Katy at her family luncheon at Tavern on Main. Never a dull moment around here!

Update – here are some photos from the day (now that I’m back)
